In the Hindu mythology it is mentioned that Sandipani is the tutor or guru of Krishna
. Sage Sandipani was so astonished at the rapid progress and development of the brothers Krishna and Balarama that He thought that the sun and moon had become his scholars. They had acquired all their knowledge that Sandipani could teach. His pupil, Krishna and Balarama then enquired about the gurudakshina.
Sage Sandipani as Gurudakshina requested them to give him his dead son who had drowned in the sea of Prabhasa. The son of the Sage was not drowned but a demon named Panchajana, who lives in the form of a conch shell, seized the boy. The son of Sandipani is still alive under the sea. Lord Krishna then plunged into the sea and having slain the demon, took the conch shell as his horn. The son of Sandipan was restored to life and given to his father.
